Does Sygnum Singapore provide digital asset banking services?
Sygnum Singapore does not provide digital asset banking services. Sygnum Bank operates as a regulated bank in Switzerland and provides these services.
Is Sygnum fully regulated?
Yes. One of Sygnum’s founding strategies was to be fully regulated from day one in both Switzerland and Singapore. Sygnum holds a banking and securities dealer licence from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), and a Capital Markets Services (CMS) licence from the MAS in Singapore. In June 2023, Sygnum Singapore was granted in principle approval of a Major Payments Institutional Licence from the MAS. In December 2022, Sygnum expanded its offering into Luxembourg, and in March 2023 received a Financial Services Permission (FSP) from the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA).
What is the relationship between Sygnum Bank in Switzerland and Sygnum Singapore?
Sygnum was founded on Swiss and Singapore heritage, and from day one has operated two headquarters in Zurich and Singapore that sit at the centre of our core European and Asian target markets. Sygnum Pte. Ltd. in Singapore is a subsidiary of Sygnum Bank AG in Switzerland.
Why did Sygnum choose headquarters in Singapore?
Singapore is a global leader in wealth management, financial technology and innovation. It forms the ideal base for Sygnum to expand and meet the growing demand for regulated digital asset solutions in Asia.
In addition to Singapore, Sygnum is also headquartered in Switzerland. Both countries are recognised as established and trusted financial hubs that provide robust standards for financial institutions. By operating as regulated entities in both of these jurisdictions, Sygnum aims to provide our clients peace of mind when building exposure to the growing digital asset economy.

Alexander LiptonSygnum industry advisor and Connection Science Fellow at MIT
“I think that Switzerland and Singapore are uniquely positioned to become world leaders in financial applications of DLT due to their outstanding technical expertise and long experience and strong expertise in financial services. In addition, regulatory frameworks in both countries are somewhat similar and innovation friendly.”
Loi LuSygnum technology advisor and CEO and Founder of Kyber Network
“DLT enables a much more transparent and potentially more efficient financial system. It will benefit all parties involved, including users, service providers, and even regulators on multiple fronts through saving cost and time, early detection and reduction of frauds, and making auditing and verification easier.”
